The deep, dusky red racemes of tiny flowers blanket the glossy, evergreen leaves of the Pieris japonica. This dense, multi-stemmed shrub can be planted in masses or as a specimen. These long lasting blooms contrasted against the yellow of a witch hazel or backed by some dark conifers would make a lovely late winter or early spring display. We are not sure which cultivar this is but it is a lovely specimen that adds color to the landscape in early spring.
